stress hormones in urologic surgery

H Loertzer, P Schneider
Stress incontinence is one of the major challenges in geriatric medicine. This is becoming more apparent in routine urology practice with the demographic changes in the population. A thorough diagnosis for a correct treatment of stress incontinence is as important in elderly women as it is in younger patients. This includes assessing the risk factors of incontinence and obesity, parturition, pelvic surgery and changes in hormone levels are risk factors usually found in elderly women. These are the main reasons why this patient group is most frequently affected...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical intervention and anesthesia procedure lead to a series of hormonal changes in the organism, which is mainly attributed to catecholamine response to stress. Surgical intervention is resulting in significant changes in neuroendocrine regulation, metabolism and physiological functions, as part of the overall response to stress. RESEARCH AIM: The aim of this study was to determine and evaluate the levels of hormones in patients undergoing transvesical prostatectomy under general or local anesthesia...

UNLABELLED: What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Ovary hormone deficiency and the age-related changes in post-menopausal women are subjected to a number of urological dysfunctions, including overactive bladder syndrome. Green tea is a popular healthy drink worldwide and its extract catechin has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. EGCG, the major type of catechin, is an antioxidant polyphenol flavonoid isolated from green tea. EGCG supplement could prevent ovariectomy-induced bladder dysfunction in a dose-related manner through its anti-oxidant, anti-fibrosis and anti-apoptosis effects...

INTRODUCTION: Hypovolemia and pain are direct stimulators of hormonal response to trauma. Thus, neuroendocrine, metabolic and inflammatory aspects of the injury are part of an overall "stress response". In particular, it manifests in patients undergoing surgical intervention. These reactions can occur with trauma, burns, severe infections and physical exertion. Metabolic and neuroendocrine response to surgical intervention depends on several factors, such as severity and duration of the surgical trauma, patient's age, type of anesthesia and surgical techniques...

Organ-sparing approaches are currently practiced in urology for many malignancies. Partial orchiectomy of germ cell tumors (GCT) provides potential benefits over radical surgery by reducing the need for androgen substitution, lessening psychological stress, and preserving fertility, with a durable cure rate. Furthermore, many testicular lesions detected clinically or by ultrasonography will be benign, in which case radical orchiectomy represents overtreatment. Partial orchiectomy for benign lesions allows preservation of endocrine and exocrine function, and reduced risk of local recurrence...

Although it is not possible to use medications on the anatomic features of incontinence, a better comprehension of the physiopathology of miction impairment can lead to pharmacological treatment of female urinary incontinence. However, analysis of the literature shows that few publications are methodologically satisfactory, nor are they comparable. In presence of stress urinary incontinence, vaginal hormone treatment must be provided if the patient presents vaginal atrophy with physical therapy or surgery planned...

Estrogens are crucial for the proper functioning of genitourinary tract. Hypoestrogenism related to menopause could be linked to numerous disturbances of lower urinary tract. However, the results of most well designed clinical studies do not support use of estrogen or hormone replacement therapy for the treatment of genitourinary symptoms. According to evidence base medicine stress urinary incontinence, overactive bladder syndrome or pelvic organ prolapse are best treated by the surgery or non-hormonal drug therapy...

AIMS: Many parameters have been utilized to try to estimate severity of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Valsalva leak point pressure (VLPP) measurements, have been proposed as a reliable means of gauging the severity of SUI during urodynamic studies (UDS). Certain, non-invasive, measures of incontinence severity have been proposed, but the correlation of these measures with VLPP is not known. In addition, the correlation of other important UDS measures and VLPP has not been evaluated...

Pubovaginal sling procedures are being performed with increased frequency for stress urinary incontinence. The vaginal wall sling was introduced in 1989 by Raz et al., and its success rate has been reported as being 61%-100%. A number of recent studies have identified that some patient factors may influence the likelihood of a successful outcome. In the present study, we evaluated whether preoperative Valsalva leak-point pressure and urethral pressure profile can be used as predictors of success after surgery...

We sought in this prospective study to use a multimodal approach to reduce stress and improve recovery in patients undergoing major surgery. During an initial study period, 30 patients were randomly allocated to receive general anesthesia (GA; Group 1) or a combination of GA and intraoperative thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA; Group 2) when undergoing radical cystectomy. Parenteral nutrition was provided for 5 days after surgery. During the second period, 15 patients were treated with a multimodal approach (Group 3) consisting of intraoperative GA and TEA, postoperative patient-controlled TEA, early oral nutrition, and enforced mobilization...
